This village is named after the local church Agios Stavros (Holy Cross). Here you will find most of the island’s shops, accommodations, tavernas, the doctor’s office and the town hall.
In Stavros, visitors can enjoy a combination of activities: explore the village’s narrow streets, bathe in the remarkable sea and consume food and beverages at the traditional tavernas and cafés.
Don’t underestimate any possibilities at the village bar. It’s likely that it will keep you entertained until morning given the right circumstances.
Kalotaritissa is a quaint hamlet close to the church of Agios Yiorgios (Saint George) located at the northern end of the island.
You can arrive there in the morning and visit its trilogy of beaches (Sapounochoma, Mesa Ammos and Trypiti.)
When your hunger pangs start ringing you can satisfy them at the small taverna where local specialties are served.
Here you will find the Mersini spring of potable water that flows from the mountain.
Livadi Beach is located below the village. After your swim you could visit one of two tavernas in the village that will astound you with their enormous servings and delectable dishes.
Mesaria is a small hamlet situated just before Mersini. There are only a few permanent residents but during the summer, it livens up with trekkers who follow the island’s footpaths.
